Delivering the Jewish Future
Hillel’s Five-Year Strategic Plan for the USA.
In 2004, Hillel began the most comprehensive Strategic Planning Process in its history. The process unfolded through:
Stakeholder Research Using surveys, facilitated group discussions, and social research to understand students, professionals, board members, community partners and the environmental factors that shape campus life.
Setting Aspirations Establishing the overarching purpose and values that guide Hillel.
Goals and Objectives Shaping the plans for achieving Hillel's mission and vision.
Implementation Priorities Prioritizing our work for the next five years.
Measuring Success Creating objective, measurable standards to evaluate Hillel's achievements.
With the completion of this process and the adoption of the final Strategic Planning Report by the Hillel Board of Directors in February 2006, the organization is poised to advance Jewish renaissance to new levels.
This strategic plan sets forth a bold five-year blueprint for Hillel. It is multi-tiered and multi-faceted, complex and comprehensive. However, at its core is one central goal: “To enrich the lives of Jewish undergraduate and graduate students so that they may enrich the Jewish community and the world.” All other objectives derive from this single ambition.
This Strategic Plan is neither a departure from Hillel's founding principles nor does it deviate from the objectives of Jewish renaissance. Rather, it is a response to the needs of today's Jewish students and a realignment of the organization's resources to better fulfill its historic mandate: to deliver the Jewish future.
